Mno Grant Kindergarten

Welcome to the Blackboard site of Mrs. Kelley and Mrs. Rotman!

We are so excited to be your child's teachers for the 2022/2023 school year! Our philosophy is that every child can learn, and our goal is to make this year both educational and fun.  We firmly believe in the power of communication and look forward to working together to ensure your child's success in kindergarten.  

Mrs. Kelley and Mrs. Rotman have worked together for over 20 years. Many of those years have been as buddy class teachers and more recently as job share partners in kindergarten. You will see Mrs. Rotman every Friday and Mrs. Kelley most other days of the week. Please click on the link below to read our welcome letter. We can't wait to meet all of you!

First Day Letter

To help ease the first time at school jitters, please plan to drop off and pick your child up outside our classroom for the first two days of school (room 204). Please note that August 4th & 5th are minimum days which means the entire school is out at 11:30. Plan to arrive early to get a parking spot and give yourself time to walk to our classroom.

Beginning Monday, August 8, students will be walked to the front or back gate by one of the kindergarten teachers. (We are all in the photo to the left, so be sure to look for one of us!) Please note that parents may NOT come on campus beginning 8/8 and that students will remain in a line to be released one at a time. We must see who your child is going home with. We appreciate your patience these first few weeks as we all get used to the routine. If you know that your child needs to be picked up at the back gate, please email us as soon as possible. Thanks!
